With all the American Gangster remix albums popping up lately; we tend to forget about all the previous joints that Hov blessed us with. Figment & Mash-Up Productions drop a gem on us with the release of The Motown Album, which combines Jay’s Black Album with classics such as “If I Were Your Woman”, “Neither One of Us”, and “Love Hangover.”
It’s no doubt that the Mash-Up Productions was successfully able to take a handful of Motown joints and provide just enough grit to what I originally considered to originally be a lackluster and overproduced release. I have to admit that I was surprisingly impressed with their attention to detail, especially with the restyled organ sample featured in the remake of “Public Service Announcement.” Plus, did you peep the cover artwork with the 45 on the back??? Classic!
